Do this on a PC.
This article says you can use MacOS terminal to telenet, but it did not work for me.
- Go through normal set up of speaker, get it on the wifi.
- Wwrite it's IP address down - figure out your device's IP address. It will tell you this when you set up your device in the Soundtouch app.
- Download telenet client - Putty --- http://www.putty.org/
- The first step is to pick the telnet option to the device on port 17000. You should see a "->" prompt.
->sys timeout inactivity disable
Inactivity timer is disabled
Hi there...I realize this is an old post but maybe you are still seeing this anyway. I would LOVE to do this, but I basically have no idea what you are talking about with telnet, putty, etc. I am on a mac and think of myself as fairly computer literate but this sounds like some advanced type stuff. Is this something a regular person can do? If so, please explain how, particularly on a mac. Thanks in advance!

Well, it’s now been in excess of 14 months since this post was first raised, and we are still awaiting an acknowledgment from Bose, let alone a fix.
I ditched my Sonos One and bought a Soundtouch 10, as the Sonos’ implementation of Alexa was severely lacking. Now I find that Bose don’t seem to care about customer loyalty either.
Its just bizarre how they don't even address it. I was shopping for a sound bar at Bestbuy and liked the Bose Solo 5 for its compact size. But I thought to myself "wait you are using a cheap Jam speaker in place of your Bose Sound Touch 10 with the echo dot, do I really want to get this and discover something like that and end up using another speaker?" So I got a Polk Magnifi sound bar instead and its prettry good!
Every now and then a moderator comes in and says he sent it over to the engineers but I guess they just ignore the request. I am not a programmer but I would think this is a fairly simple fix since they fixed it on some of the other models. Because of this stupid feature I wont by anymore bose products. Simple as that.

Thanks! Worked like a charm! Considering all the complaints about this, Bose should simply create an executable script that would fix this problem. Seems like it would be easy.

I am also very interested in this 'always on for AUX input' feature being available for Soundtouch 10. Seeing as it this model does NOT have any alarm or schedule features, my current solution would be to have an aux device(Google Chromecast Audio is my current AUX device) to play music on a scheduled time. With this auto-off this is not possible.
Using bluetooth means I would have to have my phone always on overnight.
